TEN SEEDAI / HONEY SEEDAI / CRISPY RICE FLOUR BALLS WITH HONEY


Seedai is a Naivedyam dish made on Krishna Janmashtami in Tamilnadu as an offering to Lord Krishna. They are tiny marble sized balls made out of rice flour along with other ingredients and deep fried. Seedai can be made sweet or savoury. The sweet version is made with jaggery or sugar. I have tried making them with honey.



Ingredients:
Rice flour ..... 1 cup
Maida / all purpose flour ... 1 tbsp
Honey ...................... 7-8  tbsps
Dessicated coconut ......... 1 tbsp
Sesame seeds ................... 2 tsp
Cardamom powder .......... 1/4 tsp
Ghee / clarified butter ...... 1 tbsp
Milk ..................... 2-3 tbsps as needed.
Ghee or oil .... for frying

Method:
In a bowl mix the rice flour, maida, honey, dessicated coconut, sesame seeds, ghee and cardamom powder.
Add milk little by little and knead to a smooth dough.
Make small marble sized balls and set aside.
Heat ghee or oil in a pan. Fry the balls carefully on low flame until crisp.
